Cuba - any advice on family holiday?

Jump to last reply

Me, my husband, and 15-year-old son are planning on travelling to Cuba for the first time just after Christmas for about 10 days.

We would like to lay on a beach, snorkel, and see the sights in Havana and possbly Trinidad.

We don't need to stay in an All-Inclusive resort, but would like something with amenities in an upper-moderate to deluxe category.We are also thinking it might be nice to meet some of the locals by staying at least 1-2 nights in a casa particulares.

I was looking at the possibility of staying at Brisas in Ancon as the beach sounds nice there and it is close to Trinidad. However, it may be a little too quiet for a 15-year-old boy. So I was also looking at staying in Varadero then moving on for a couple of nights in each of Trinidad and Havana.

Too many options exist for this great location!

Am I on the right track with the choice of destinations....or is there someplace else you would recommend? Also, with the little I've checked on the weather in Dec/Jan it looks like it might not be as warm as we would like it (based on the last couple of Decembers). Has anyone been there Dec/Jan and was it usually warm enough to lay out on the beach?

Thanks for any help you can provide!








Thank you for any help and advice you can
